Burns' celebrations start with Alloway 1759

20 - 25 January 2016 Burns is celebrated right through the year in Ayrshire. And it starts with a bang in January with Alloway 1759. A new event is Burns Aflame Fire Garden with flame-lined paths and scorching trees leading up to Burms Monument. All the usual musical venues are hosting gigs - try Wellingtons Bar for Reel, Rattle 'n' Roll on 22 January. And don't forget the World Haggis Hurling Campionships.
